Baby massage is an ancient and positive way to connect with your baby. Classes are most suitable for babies from 8 weeks to 6 months old (or when they start crawling), with the optimum age for starting to learn it being from 12 to 18 weeks (i.e. before the babies are on the move!).
The benefits of baby massage are well researched, and include stimulation of all the big systems (circulation, digestion, respiration, immune, skin, language, nervous); relaxation (releases stress, produces calming hormones, helps to regulate sleep patterns); relief (sinuses, growing pains, teething, colic, constipation, excess mucous); and interaction (bonding, communication, eye contact, one to one activity).
The six week course costs £60, which includes a bottle of organic massage oil, a set of illustrated handouts and refreshments. It is open to a minimum of six and a maximum of ten parents and babies.
There is also an additional, optional dads only class held on a Saturday afternoon at the end of each course, which is suitable for any dads whose baby has already been through a complete baby massage course (either with me or someone else).
